Our house loves a good old-fashioned disaster movie and, trust me, I love all the complicated indies and high concept mind-blown adventures as well. Only last week we re-visited the ridiculously fun 2012, plus the likes of The Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day, Pacific Rim, and Gareth Edwards’s underrated 2014 Godzilla
Next up for the return of the big-screen actioner is Greenland, which has come out of nowhere for me, starring modern action-hero Gerald Butler (who has been losing his way a little of late) who is back and with a bang!
Directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen) and starring Butler and Morena Baccarin, the film follows one family’s dangerous journey for survival as an unstoppable comet hurtles towards a devastating collision with Earth. I don’t need to say anything else, besides the fact it stars the legendary Scott Glenn as well, watch the trailer and enjoy:
John Garrity (Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being levelled by the comet’s fragments, the Garritys experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.
